A search of Dinner Cruises yields many Companies. My wife doesn’t like seafood and she does not like to be around the smell. Dolphin Star hosted a Chicken and Steak dinner. Their price was lower than the other companies, all you can eat seafood and drinks, so I worried about quality. Upon boarding we were given our complimentary drink, with or without alcohol, the meal was the best we had eaten in 2 weeks while on the islands. The ship’s Captain was very personable and the crew attentive. The seating is COVID mandated, the Captain positioned the boat for optimum viewing. I highly recommend the best Dinner Cruise for the price.

The staff including the Captain and crew were all very nice, professional and helpful. The dinner food was prepared perfectly, very flavorful and exactly what I wanted. I really liked the boat and the captain did his best to provide a smooth ride. I especially liked the e mālie atmosphere throughout the whole trip which promoted meeting new folks. I would definitely recommend this trip. Mahalo nui loa

The staff was what made this sunset cruise excusion worth the $60 my wife and I spent on it (we used our $100 Costco-Aloha VIP credit). We were promised a vegan friendly meal and they did not deliver. However, they offered us fruit and were kind enough to look up the ingredients to see all of the things on our served plates that we could actually not eat. The sunset was ruined by the weather, but the captain was hilarious and the staff was very attentive. They offered to take pictures and made a lot of small talk to make the experience memorable. Would we pay full price for this excursion? Probably not. Put at the price we paid for it, we enjoyed our time!
